Don't Know Much About Economy

Articles on NRO explaining how Obama's "stimulus" package (Jonah Goldberg) and obeisance to unions (Charles Krauthammer) have significantly worsened the U.S. economy.

On a a related note -
Peter Kirsanow (NRO) listed five items the mainstream media considers less important than Sarah Palin's recently released e-mails. I found one of these particularly noteworthy.

An analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that if the number of people looking for work today were the same as the number when President Obama took office, the reported unemployment rate for May would be 11 percent rather than 9.1 percent.

And for those who don't actually know what's in the Ryan plan, (most people), visit the other link below.
